South Africa’s Competition Commission has reportedly cleared Vodacom and MTN of price-fixing, collusion and setting interconnect fees unfairly high.

According to reports, this decision was made despite the Competition Commission finding that MTN and Vodacom had similar rates and admitting that it still had residual concerns about the companies’ high rates between 2004 and 2009.

The Competition Commission’s manager for advocacy and stakeholder relations, Oupa Bodibe stated that the commission completed the investigation at the end of last year, and it decided not to refer the matter to the Competition Tribunal.
